Sekinchan | Travel

But sometimes our eyes tend to feel blurry by looking at structures above our shoulders and greenery is all we need to feel better from it.
Isolation, escaping from the bustling environment, peace, lush greenery, and captivating view of mother nature, it all best describes a small town known as Sekinchan. 

Sekinchan is a small town located in Sabak Bernam, Selangor, Malaysia. This town highlights a wide and breathtaking view of the paddy fields which acts as a major rice producing area in Malaysia. In the month of June and December, the lush paddy fields turns into gold yellow which indicates the farmers that it is ready for harvesting.
